We've enjoyed this park very much, despite the nasty stickers in the summer crisped lawn areas and the lower than normal lake levels. The sites all have wonderful mountain and lake views, are paved and have full hook ups. Not much shade is available from the line of small trees at the back of the sites, but we managed nicely using a combination of their weak shade and our big awning.
The moonshine on the still water is so lovely, it reminds me of our lake at night.
It's summer time and that means people enjoying themselves, everywhere, but we didn't feel cramped at all and really loved watching their antics on the lake. We loved watching the birds and ospreys using the water as well.
I know we'll be back because we didn't even scratch the surface of this area's charms, there is so much to see and do. We started out pretty well, but as the week wore on the temperatures made me positively wilt. I felt less like exploring and more like holing up either in Beluga's welcome air conditioning or in the shade with a good book and the lake to keep an eye on. I'm such a wimp. Three digit heat is too much for me.
We didn't get to the Farmer's Market, we didn't see a play or even take a tour of the theater. We didn't get to more wineries, and there are MORE wineries to visit. We didn't hike, swim (we did wade) or even eat out at one of the many wonderful restaurants in Ashland. We didn't shop in the interesting shops or wander the quaint streets. We didn't stop in at the Equamore Sanctuary right next door, although I am in the middle of learning about them and their horses on their website equamore.org.
The thought of all those things will bring us back for sure. We really like what we have seen, we'll try to get back earlier or later in the season next time.
Tomorrow morning we're off to Lakehead, California to check out Mt. Shasta and Shasta Lake.
We've absolutely loved our summer in Oregon, it will be hard to leave.
